15 Leftover Turkey Recipes

A delicious collection of 15 Leftover Turkey Recipes that will put that Thanksgiving surplus to good use! | gimmesomeoven.com

Sooooo, pretty sure I’m one of those girls who looks forward to turkey leftovers more than the actual bird on Thanksgiving itself.

Anyone with me?!?

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m not opposed to plain ol’ turkey and gravy.  I’ll gladly help myself to a small portion on T-Day when it’s fresh out of the oven.  But once the meal is over and everyone starts divvying up the leftovers, I’m first in line with my tupperware ready to go.  Because in my book, the leftover turkey recipes are where it’s at.

Usually I just sub turkey into all of my favorite chicken recipes.  But after taking a quick spin around the blogosphere checking out actual leftover turkey recipes, there were so many good ones that we had to do a roundup and share them with you today.  Because with recipes for everything from turkey frittatas, to turkey enchiladas, to turkey tikka masala, to turkey pho, to turkey pot pie, to turkey pizza — I’m pretty sure you’re going to want to call dibs on those leftovers too.  In fact, you might even consider bringing home a bigger bird just to have extras.  ;)

So best wishes to all of you for a happy and delicious Thanksgiving, with even more deliciousness to come afterwards!

  1. I am beyond excited about that cranberry mustard! It’s something you wouldn’t think of at first but sounds incredible…especially for paninis. Great roundup!

  2. Thanks for including my Turkey Hash!

  3. I so know what you mean.  We started celebrating this holiday in our home just a couple of years ago and I already know what’s going to happen on the day after. I’ll have a bunch of leftovers and no one will want to look at them. Except me, of course. I hate throwing away food and I always try to avoid it. So I always make a pretty plane turkey in the oven — with just a bit of black pepper, salt and lemons. I find that this is the best way to ensure that the meat will go well with other ingredients when I add it in another recipe. That being said, I’m grateful for your round-up, I got a bunch of ideas out of it. I especially love the soup ideas — perfect for the weather we have here — warm and comforting.
    Cheers!
